Gruden said he wasn't sure when Hatcher tweaked his knee.


Redskins plan to use Jason Hatcher in number of ways


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/27/2014) In Dallas, Jason Hatcher lined up mainly as a right defensive end. But with the Redskins, the defensive lineman is going to be used in a number of ways

"There's a lot of different fronts we can play, that (defensive coordinator Jim Haslett) can play. [Hatcher] can do a lot of different things," Gruden said per the Washington Post. "That's why he's so important to us because he's so versatile. There's not a position on that defensive line he can't play. We'll go out and play with our new toy when we get to training camp and figure out what we can do with him. In talking to him, after we signed him, Jason is champing at the bit. A lot of people had him viewed as, 'I just want to be a 3-technique in a 4-3.' That's not true at all. He wants to move around, be a 4, be a 5, be a 3. That makes him more effective."

Melton's "health and legal issues might impact what he commands on the free-agent market," the report said, adding it's unclear if Dallas would have enough money to sign him.

Melton tore his ACL in Week 3 and was sorely missed by Chicago. He had 13 sacks and two forced fumbles over the previous two seasons.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
